thanks for the very quick review and for this effort . Hope to see something similar to the Pentax k50
arhmatic: Look! it's got a movie record button!
Seriously, it's got several features that I wish my x-e1 had, such as better screen, supposedly better movie, wireless, etc, for just half the money I paid less than a year ago...
this is a pen type and good way to atttact new buyrs to the fuji system.
whtchocla7e: The world needs more ugly viewfinder-less cameras!!
I suggest to add a new rumors window on dpr front page , where rumors today become a source of information..In all cases, it will be treated as just rumors, not news. .
This camera in my opinion as a concept will not die.
keep the k mount and take the brand name to the planet!
what a smart camera!I like the concept ,the ergonomics,the trusty sensor and THE PRICE.
Well done pentax.It is time to be #3 in dslr market.and this will be a fact soon!I like the k50 concept.does it has focuss peaking!
I think almost samples are soft and the bokeh is normal.
This is a fair and excellent review.thanks dpr.I like the simple and comperhensive round up..and thanks pentax for gaining the most benfit of this old but trusty sensor.sorry for my bad english
I also have fa 35 f2.It is very sharp wide open .I like this lens .thanks pentax for keeping it in product untill now. what about a fa 35 f1.4 at the same shape and price!
the pentax fa 31 is now 1299$ from 900$.this sigma will be my next purchas for my k5 .I tried the nikon mount version and it is very nice lens.
tamron would you please give pentaxians this lens !
the colors are awesome! well done pentax! altough it is a very late step!
GPW: Scott Kelby hails the D7100 as the low noise champ by a long shot, yet DPR said it falls short of the competition. Who do you believe?
Iwish nikon put the 2 years old sony sensor on D300 body and sell it at 1200$!
LUCKY you are fuji! more than 4 topics on front page!
Ingloryon: Bulk like this and no hotshoe? Why the hell should anyone buy it?
p&s.. who cares about hot shoe or poor vf.It has a good looking and when price is decreased to 319$ like k01 it will sell many!!
Octane: Congrats on 1st place! When I saw your photo I was almost sure it would be a winner, and it turns out I was right! Well deserved and I'm happy being second after such a great shot!
It is the expression momment!congrats!
colesf: The k5IIs has pretty crappy moire. What's curious is that the Canon 5D mk ii and iii both have it just as bad.
considering moire ..pentax 645d is AA free and no complains about moire . my friend has this amazing tool using it in studio especialy.. and in land scape some times. he never complain about moire. is k5IIs some thing different\!!
neo_nights: Wow! The K5-IIs is the new High ISO king for APS-C cameras! Impressive, indeed!
Good work pentax.I like the pentax approach in that way.If you have a very capable camera/k5/ why I should go to a may be weak sensor/24mp/!but dont give me an old sensor in the same price as a new one!
Matthew Miller: I wonder if it might make sense to have completely separate silver/gold awards for video and for still photography? They're really very different use cases, and I know there's a trend towards converged devices, but it's a shame that a camera which really focuses on being a great camera gets dinged in the awards because it's not a camcorder.
the absence of video feature/hope that/ .. may encourage manufacturers to use the great ccd sensors again !
